Prunetti's Saggio pittorico . was originally published in Rome, 1786, with a second edition following in 1818 and a third in 1922.The first half of the book includes the detailed rules of artistic composition, color selection, and technique advocated by Prunetti; brief biographies of European painters of the thirteenth through the eighteenth centuries, arranged by school; and a summary of important paintings to be found in Roman churches and palaces. The second half of the book (pp. 141-258) consists of Taborda's Memoria dos mais famosos pintores portuguezes. The 96 biographical entries - some extending to several pages in length - begin with the early fifteenth-century painter Álvaro de Pedro and continue chronologically to the early nineteenth century. Taborda provides a wealth of biographical information, much of it taken from archival sources, often with precise volume and page references. This is supplemented by notes of works painted (with their locations at the time) and buildings decorated. Many of the artists were women. Appended is a useful glossary of Portuguese art terms.José da Cunha Taborda (1766-1836) studied painting and architecture in Lisbon and Rome, returning to Lisbon in 1796 as professor of the newly established painting school. Appointed pintor régio in 1803, with an annual pension of 700.000 réis, Taborda's work adorns the Real Palácio da Ajuda. Taborda also translated a story from Boccaccio's Decameron, published under the title Nathan e Mitridates by the Impressão Regia in 1816.The title page vignette was drawn by Taborda and engraved by Domingos José da Silva. A reprint of this edition appeared in Coimbra, 1922.*** Innocêncio IV, 302: calling for only 272 pp. Gonçalves Rodrigues, A tradução em Portugal 3201. Not in Palha.
